On all of our six trips to BA since May 2013 up to May this year, my partner and I have stayed at IQ Callao. During the past year we have experienced the place slowly deteriorate which is quite unfortunate as it is in a good location and used to be good value for money. Some examples: - Room cleaning...

Let's start with the positives. 1) The facility is in a great location 2) the decor is nice and the lobby, elevators, and apartment are very clean 3) the bed is reasonably comfortable. However, the internet connectivity and wifi network are a disaster. Good luck getting connected. Over the week, it has varied from no wifi, to no interconnection to... More

This place is relatively cheap however not as good as it could be. The room I stayed in only had one power point (that I could see) so I could only plug in one item at a time. It was not located near the bed so it was quite inconvenient. Also you need the room card to use electricity so... More

My daughter-in-law and I wanted a place where we could cook some of our own meals, relax by the pool and walk to great shopping. IQ Callao met all these and more. Clean and comfortable with friendly managers and staff, we felt right at home here. And it is one of the most economical accommodations in BA. And we felt... More

I stayed at IQ Callao at the end of Juanuary/2014. Infra-structure is very good and quality of the services is fine, staff is friendly. Please notice that this is not a tipycal hotel but an Apart-Hotel or an Apartment. So there is no service room available nor a restaurant nor place to order a meal in main floor. If you... More

fantastic location big rooms and very comfortable. Value for money 10 out of 10. The gym is too small and the pool is a lap pool. Breakfast is very minimal but good quality with an option of upgrade for little money

Stayed at the IQ Callao for three nights in September. The desk help was *very* friendly and helpful with any/all questions I had vis-à-vis getting around, currency exchange, etc. Highly recommend this place in one, if not the most popular neighborhood in Buenos Aires.

I was at the IQ Callao for a week at the end of August. I liked it very much: the room was spacious and clean. It was a studio apartment more than a hotel room. It had a kitchenette with utensils (plates, glasses, a few pots and pans, etc.) I was by myself and I didn’t cook, but the microwave... More

Moved from Palermo Soho area to experience Recoleta. You can take the Subte here, but it is quite a distance to walk from the green line. Keep in mind this area of Buenos Aires is very similar to NYC with all the people, traffic, and tall buildings. The apartment is pleasing to the eyes, but what I did find some... More
